Only the following geometric representation items are allowed as an 'Axis' shape representation of IfcWall, and IfcWallStandardCase.

    1. linear segment as IfcPolyline with two points, or as IfcTrimmedCurve with BasisCurve being an IfcLine.

    2. circular arc segment as IfcTrimmedCurve with BasisCurve being an IfcCircle.


    * An 'Axis' shape representation is mandatory IfcWallStandardCase and optional for IfcWall.
